in one sense that people may not be familiar with. he's the first american president since andrew jackson to win a re-election with a lower popular vote percentage than he won his first time. we don't do that in american politics. when we re-elect a president, we typically embrace that president even more strongly than the first time. the president's not in that political category, but he has won re-election and he has a mandate based on what he makes of it. many political scientists say the idea of a mandate is basically fiction. >> we learned something about the shape of the electorate. in 2008, the obama campaign decided they were going to build a coalition out of young voters, minority voters and college-educated women. they did that again. they did it in a slightly different ways and different regions of the country, but the president get a smaller share of the white vote, but the white vote shrunk, and he got a larger share -- well, the white vote actually stayed about the same, it's been shrinking since 1990, '92, but he got a larger vote of the minority vote, hispanics and african

of oprah winfrey and jesse jackson weeping. we look at the audience tonight, and there is a different reaction. a reminder of when the new england patriots won the first super bowl. after they won the first time, the expectation was, that we can win. you are talking about the coalition, this new coalition in the democratic party. i think it says something, not just to the republican party, but perhaps the rest of america. i was talking earlier to the head of the urban league. he made the point of this coalition, is becoming more mature. we talk about this coalition of young voters. of women and minorities, african-americans and hispanics. he made the point that not only should the republican party take notice, but perhaps the rest of america, corporate america, to take notice that america is changing. and perhaps not just the republican party, but also organizations. to look at diversity in a different way. because you see from this audience that they won a tough race. and they are certainly relieved. but there seems to be an expectation in this crowd that this is the direction americ
